George Washington Bacon (1830-1922) was a prolific London based book and map publisher active in the mid to late 19th century. Bacon was born in New York and emigrated to England c. 1862. He was initially a London agent for the American atlas publisher Joseph Hitchins Colton. By 1871 he had become a British subject and was living in Battersea with his wife and two daughters. He was described on the Census of 1871 as being a map publisher, employing three men, five boys, and one young lady. Bacon died 21 Jan 1922. Bacon's firm G.W. Bacon and Co. produced a wide variety of maps and guides. In 1893, Bacon & Co. acquired the map publishing business of J. Wyld. Then, around the turn of the century, Bacon & Co. itself was folded into the Scottish publishing house of W.& A.K. Johnston.
